In theory a good idea in reality a terrorist is just going to have a fake online profile etc. Not exactly hard to fake now is it. Look at all the fake keyboard warriors in this thread.

Let me not post it here that Trump is an immoral dotard. He may become a two-term President and what i post here may come back to haunt me on an application for a US Visa.

I guess all we have to do is deactivate our social media when applying for a Visa until we enter the US.

I don't mind, they can knock themselves out. I'm not radical, my social media is boring. If it will help keep terrorists at bay... good...

The big question is: are they asking for social media PASSWORDS as well?

A civics exam is not feasible before entering. I had to study U.S. history for my citizenship when I chose to become one. I have excellent English skills being born and raised in England as well as foreign languages and cultural understanding. Social media profiles can give clues, but the criminals and con artists know how to avert this area. Email addresses are getting in personal identifiable data, but could be part of the application and not be presented in such an offensive manner.

Good we remember others that did us harm when their social media was ignored. In San Bernardino Dec 2 2015. April 3rd 2018 May 24th 2014 all in the Liberal California hmm 🤔

So calling Trump an criminal asshole would prevent a person from obtaining a visa?
